CPO, I was hoping someone would do that song.  Good job. Hope you feel better soon. 

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

All the party people ROCK with what they brought > I enjoyed all of them.

I'm a bit late but had to stop in and party with who was left.

@Georganne @coolpinkone @StoneDog Great job everyone!!

Well I gave up on my fancy pants attempts.  Truth be told I was ready to quit trying to record all together!!  BUT I have IRISH in me!!  

I could not hear over my violin to play with background music.  So I decide to not play with the background music but my tenor recorder. Record my violin first and then add my tenor recorder.  

So I am recording my violin and no matter where I played, it was a screeching miserable mess.  I even go back to the bathroom - toilet seat bolts tightened!!!

Then YEAH I remembered the trick Teach taught me, start the song on a different string!!  Instead of playing Si Bheag Si Mhor on strings A and D  I played on strings G and D. 

WARNING this is loud, you might want to turn the sound down.

WOW!!!
I'm so proud of all of you :-)
Great job and fun to watch all of you.

John, you could easily turn that 2011 into 2014 with some whit paint or thread. :-) Wouldn't cost you that much. Also, are you using some kind of baroque bow. That tip looked long and skinny from what I could see.

Naska - Your right hand fingers are fantastic. I don't know if it is your teacher or that you are just a great learner but bravo. The only thing I would want from your video is some more light. :-) I could almost make out that you had blue hair and fingernails as well.

StoneDog - looks like you are having the same weather and scenery as we are here. :-)

Bravo to ALL of you!!!

@Fiddlerman

Pierre 

Yes, that is a snakewood baroque bow. It has become my bow of choice of late because it is so light. It's only downside that I've noticed so far is that it's a tad shorter than the standard bow but it's no great problem. It's narrower bow hair doesn't seem to be an issue so far

@Schaick 

Your Si Bheag Si Mhor was great. Thanks.

And once again, I thank all that joined in. It was a great party. Will have to do it again next year. birthday_ballooncheers

Sure, John, I could do that. @Picklefish started the Fourth of July party last year but if he doesn't want to host it again this year, I'll do it.

At the very least, I can start promoting it! So, everyone, consider yourself invited: start practicing American patriotic tunes, fire up the grill and put on some hamburgers and hot dogs, and get the fireworks ready! We'll get together in early summer for a Fourth of July party (unless someone comes up with another party theme in the meantime).

sorry I didnt get one in for the party...I dont own a violin anymore, I tinker with LeeAnn's from time to time. Was going to do one but its in desperate need of strings,which I most likely have a set somewhere in my stuff crossedfingers

 

playing it woke up some old feelings, may have to get back into it when I can afford a violin again.
